A total solar eclipse in Ontario on Monday is expected to result in a drop in power equivalent to the power of half of Toronto, according to officials. On Friday, Ontario’s energy minister, Todd Smith, announced that southwest Ontario would be in the “path of totality” during the eclipse, which will occur on April 8.

The eclipse will begin between 2:00 pm and 4:00 pm. According to Smith, the majority of Ontario’s solar generation will be directly on the path of the eclipse, resulting in a drop of electricity equivalent to 1:800 megawatts, or enough power to power half of Toronto.
